“Entrepreneurs transform lives and communities – by creating jobs and income, and inspiring others to lead change. But they need the right environment to thrive. Through Ashish J Thakkar Global Entrepreneurship index, the Mara foundation will show which regions do this well and why, thereby helping more economies enjoy sustainable and inclusive growth. There is no silver bullet for entrepreneurial success, and so comparisons shouldn’t be about competition – they should provide a platform for a ‘race to the top’.” Mark A Weinberger
